Intern Managers! Connect Your Summer Interns with the Capital Region!

The Center for Economic Growth & CapNY have planned a series of summer events aimed at connecting your interns with the communities of the Capital Region. All programs are offered free of charge, though we do request that interns register ahead of time. The first event is the Summer in CapNY virtual kick off on Wednesday, June 22 during the lunch hour. In that session we’ll hear from a panel of young professionals and we’ll share information about future events.
